Pandaland II

Population7.179 billion

Capitalthe Bamboo Forest
LeaderGiant Panda


The Black and White Dynasty of Pandaland II is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Giant Panda with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.179 billion Pandas have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Bamboo Forest. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Panda economy, worth a remarkable 3,446 trillion Bamboos a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 480,056 Bamboos, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Giant Panda's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, and sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside. Crime is totally unknown. Pandaland II's national animal is the Giraffe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Bambooism.

Pandaland II is ranked 1,581st in the world and 39th in the West Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 195,313.22 Standard Monetary Units.
